Abstract

At the conclusion of the study, The Cross-Cultural Dimensions of Globalized E-Learning (Edmundson, 2004), the cultural adaptation process (CAP) model was introduced as a proposed guideline for evaluating existing e-learning courses and for matching them to the cultural profiles of targeted learners. In theory, the model could facilitate the development of culturally-adapted and accessible e-learning courses, which in turn provide opportunities for all learners to achieve equitable learning outcomes. In this chapter, the author illustrates, with a hypothetical example, how to use the CAP model. As a result of this mock exercise, modifications to the model are recommended. However, the CAP model would benefit from further exploration, use, and development by researchers and practitioners in the field.
